FA reveal League changes (or not)

The FA have issued the revised Non League Structure and its disappointing news for Sholing. We have been kept in a South West division (as have Winchester & Totton), but Basingstoke & Thatcham have moved to a South Central Isthmian league (Moneyfields gone back down to the Wessex as per their request).

With Plymouth Parkway joining our league, our traveling & associated costs will actually go up from previous seasons. This was supposed to be one of the main drivers for the restructure, to reduce clubs traveling. In fact, if we get promotion to Step 3, we'd probably travel less.
 
SO, WE WILL NEED YOU, OUR SUPPORTERS, SPONSORS & VOLUNTEERS MORE THAN EVER!
 
We remain an ambitious club that wants to grow on and off the pitch and despite these repeated challenges thrown at us by the football authorities, we know we can make Sholing FC the best little club around.

Statement from Dave Diaper : I am pleased to announce the appointment of Byron Mason as Sholing assistant manager. Byron fills the position vacated by Iain Calder who is now the Manager of Totton & Eling. I'd like to put on record our thanks to Iain for his years of service to the Boatmen & wish him all the best in his new role. Byron will join myself and Marc with the joint ambition of leading Sholing to promotion. Also officially joining the first team coaching staff is former player Jack Smith. We look forward to getting back to playing & having your support. Up the Boatmen

Sholing 0-2 Torquay United

The Boatmen's historic run in the FA Cup came to an end at the hands of the National League leaders.  Sholing matched Torquay for long periods, created some decent chances, but were dealt a cruel blow on the stroke of half time when the linesman gave a soft penalty, which was scored.  Boatmen continued to play well in atrocious conditions in the 2nd half, but a defensive mistake on 75 mins handed Torquay the killer second. A minute later, Dan Mason's powerful header appeared to be blocked on the line with the help of a hand, but nothing was given. Sholing can be very proud of their performance and if we had a bit more luck, it might have been a different result - Match Report & Photos
